Presented by Dr. Chris Rowe, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science – Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

Come hear about Maryland’s state reptile and the challenges it faces as the climate continues to warm. Based on recent and ongoing studies, Dr. Chris Rowe will discuss how nest temperatures affect terrapins during development and how sea level rise is threatening the critical habitats that terrapins depend on throughout their lives.

This fall, the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory will offer seminars in a hybrid format: you can choose to attend in person, or join via Zoom.

Directions for in person attendance, or a Zoom participation link, will be sent to the email address you provide during registration.
